Needless to say brushing your dog's teeth is...challenging. Petsmile is here to offer new pet-parents a seamless 3 step process, where your new furry bundle of joy becomes familiar with different parts of the teeth brushing experience.
Step 1: Handling the mouth and face
Massage and handle the chin, upper and lower jaw for a couple minutes at least once a day to get them familiar with you touching this area of their face
Step 2: Massage the teeth and gums with a mildly abrasive material
Use materials such as a soft cloth or gauze in order to be gentle on their baby teeth
You've made it! Now while using a toothpaste with flavor brushing your new pet's teeth and gums will be a tasty process
